Review for Foundation To Assist Young Musicians (FAYM), Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since launching the Foundation to Assist Young Musicians (FAYM) in December 2007, the public's response has been overwhelmingly positive. FAYM has been able to help young musicians through scholarship assistance, mentoring, and professional career advancement opportunities. Additionally FAYM has created an inner city violin program for kindergarten age children in southern Nevada that has proven to be of great value in providing an activity of substance for entire families and serves as a prototype program for further expansion. FAYM's support comes from many sources -- generous people in 18 States of the Union & the District of Columbia as well as Australia, Canada, China, Poland, & Puerto Rico have made contributions. FAYM has over 9,100 supporters on Facebook who have donated over $5,300 -- giving FAYM third place out of the 29,378 Arts & Culture causes on Facebook in terms of money raised. All of this has been achieved as a totally volunteer labor of love on the part of many involved. There is NO PAID STAFF so that ALL CONTRIBUTIONS made to FAYM go ENIRELY to ASSIST YOUNG MUSICIANS!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

creating opportunities for young musicians that are telling and enriching!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transform the lives of needy and at-risk youth by giving them productive musical activities to pursue....much like the exemplary Venezuelan EL SISTEMA has created for largely at-risk youth in that country over the past 33 years.

Ways to make it better...

I were a rich man! Then I could donated more of my own resources to making dreams come true for needy and talented young musicians!
